Sounds good to me and look forward to some updates:)
That’s a blast from the past Mark and I have some 1970’s Ral Partha figures somewhere in the attic that I’m too attached to to get rid of, even though they haven’t been used since the early 1980’s!
Great work there!28/11/2021 at 17:34 in reply to: Warfare 2021, Ascot – Wargames Association of Reading #165367
Thanks for the review JJ.
I preferred the ‘old layout’ as it was much easier to see. Like others, I spent many minutes trying to find the ‘submit’ button that is barely visible.
The kitchen is my hobby space for 90% of the time, but I do have a garage for all the really dusty and smelly terrain making, so not all bad.
I had a planned game with friends out of town so was unable to attend. As Guy said, I hope it went well for all concerned.
Visitor numbers down around 50% apparently, with circa 4,000 advance tickets sold. IIRC numbers used to be around the 10K mark.
Very nice Mark and I too like CCP1 the best.
I heard a documentary on these planes used in WWII and from memory, were flown by female pilots. IIRC they were called Night Witches or something similar by the Germans. They used to switch their engines off on the approach to glide silently over the German positions and then re-start them once they’d dropped their payload.
That’s a nice looking game and love the castle and certainly an interesting scenario.
Some cracking games the Willz!
Very nicely done!
That’s very neat!
Great work Michael!!!
They look great Andrew.
On average every couple of weeks and solo at home. I haven’t played at a club for maybe ten years or so and no longer feel the need. With lockdown restrictions easing I might be able to resume some FtF games and maybe even weekly.
I only use FB for support groups for our son with special needs, otherwise of little interest or use to be honest. I think they may be dropping forums and moving to FB because it’s free?
That’s a superb looking table and figures!
That’s a lovely looking game Mark!
Simply stunning and as Andrew has said, just wish you were this side of the pond!
I agree with Tony and Jim. Afterall it’s fantasy anyway so do with it what you will, as it’s all about having fun at the end of the day.
Looks pretty cool Michael!
Oh those are nice Will!
Excellent work there Robert!
This project has come along leaps and bounds since I last checked in on it. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the update Guy. I think I’ll still pass on these, using BPII or SotE for ‘smaller’ games and BBB for ‘bigger’ ones, as they work for me. Saying that I’m still tempted by General d’Armee!
Our daughter suffers from social anxiety and depression, so we have some small insight into what you face each day. She shares lots of useful info with me so I can try to be as informed as I can to help her.
As for getting any period ‘right’, all we can do is make as good a stab at it as we can, given the information we have to hand, which as the period goes back in history, is less reliable to modern eyes IMHO.
Great to see you having fun, which is the most important thing!
I have settled on core rulesets for my favourite periods that I game, after years of thinking that there were ‘better’ ones out there. They work for me and more importantly, I can concentrate on the game rather than trying to remember the rules, which makes a huge difference!
Excellent news old chap! The hardest thing is taking the first step, or die roll in this case, so well done for doing that. You could buy some felt cloth for the games mat instead of a board, so the felt hills etc should not slide around. Anyway, I hope you counsellor is impressed with what you achieved and i look forward to more games as and when you feel up to it!
Fingers crossed it all goes OK for you Andrew!
I’ll have to check that out:)
Good to hear your back! Fingers crossed for the future.
